It's hard to motivate yourself in an online school. I know, I graduated from Concord on Feb 28. I took the bar exam too, I'm still a little in shock. In 30 days I find out if I passed. I highly recommend CLS, IF, you can stay focused, hold a job and study into the late nights and all weekend. I am finally starting to get caught up on current events, and I read a novel on March 1. So whether a person goes to a traditional school or now the online it takes a lot of your time. I read somewhere on this discussion board that online schools don't partake in traditional activities. CLS does, two teams sent to Moot Court competitions. LEEP - is our legal intern program that puts 4L students into law offices all over the country, CLS is for real, at graduation they announced we almost have 2000 graduates! I have a JD, and if I didn't pass the bar this time, I'm sure to pass it in July. WHY? Because I was pretty confident at this sitting, loved the essay questions, especially the partnership one. As for the Performance Tests! Who wouldn't want to argue the confrontation clause to keep out testimonial hearsay! Yes, I loved it plus on a personal note, the name of the defendant (fictional or not) made me feel weird, my son's name. I looked around the room looking for cameras and wondered who at the bar decided to mess with my head!
30 more days! Then I found out. Yes, I will be practicing and loving every minute of it. I can write simple wills, have extensive contract drafting background, have been assisting attorneys filing articles of incorporation/organizations in over 13 states. Prepare hundreds of consent resolutions, bylaws, operating agreements and have been filing SEC EDGAR documents for the last 15 years. I can and will practice business, family law, estate planning, real estate and now I want to learn immigration, my passion to help refugees all over the world. I'll do that pro bono and I have tons of administrative law experience. I'm 53 and soon to be a lawyer!
